Antutu benchmarks show us what the octacore JiaYu S2 is capable of!


The ultrathin JiaYu S2 octacore smartphone has been gong through the usual Antutu benchmarks scoring as well as rivals the THL T100S and Zopo ZP998.

Running a 1.7Ghz MT6592 processor with 2GB RAM on a 5-inch FHD 1920 x 1080 display the S2 has the same hardware as rival flagship phones from Zopo and THL and like those phones is capable of some rather good Antutu benchmarks! Scoring slightly less than the Zopo and THL phones, the JiaYu S2 manages 25,886 points in Antutu, and we’re sure the difference in benchmarks results between octacore phones is just as unnoticeable as it is between a good quad-core and the newer octacore machines.

The JiaYu S2 measures 139 x 67 x 6mm, a lot thinner than similar spec phones, and is also made from stainless steel rather than the usual plastic. Other S2 details include a 13 mega-pixel main camera, 8 mega-pixel front and NFC.

What to you think of the JiaYu S2 compared to the current crop of octacore Chinese phones?

    I would prefer thicker phone with larger battery.
    6mm or 9mm – i don’t care.

      I second that bro. No need to have a 1mm phone with a tiny battery and charging every 30mins. Thats crap to me.

        why people always thought battery life from it’s thickness?is it because more thick more battery? that stupid it’s even out yet, do you ever have experience with it? technology is moving dude and you still hoping for thick smartphone? that sucks

        i really like thin smartphone and great battery life, i hope with this 6mm thin also come with long life battery

          Because thicker devices are not a problem, big devices are in the other dimensions. Plus battery capacity is proportionate to it’s thickness as well and thin batteries have much lower capacity. Phones were even 15mm thick and it caused no issues. Yet now we have 150mm tall and 80mm wide phones that won’t even fit into a pocket etc. yet they are 6mm thin and discharge not in 7 days but in 6h…

      The battery life is my concern too, although thin is good.

    Doesn’t matter how good the device is if it only supports 3G 2100mhz. Hopefully this one breaks the trend.

    oh man, did they swap the snapdragon 600 for the overrated octacore mtk… what a waste of potential…

      Don’t worry, they still have the Jiayu S1 with snap 600

    I want a bigger phone, 6″ at least, with a large battery.

      I want a smaller phone with large battery. 4,5″ max and at least 3000 mAh.
      Unfortunatelly there wasn’t a breakthrough in the battery techonlogy in the last years. The larger battery means thicker phone. This thinness mania is meaningless. 9 mm is fine if i get a large battery with it.
